Colocasia ROYAL HAWAIIAN® ‘White Lava’

Colocasia esculenta

Royal Hawaiian ColocasiaThe Colocasia ROYAL HAWAIIAN® Collection has been bred for sturdy garden performance and container specimens.

Colocasia esculenta ROYAL HAWAIIAN® ‘White Lava’ is the latest in the elephant ear breeding handiwork of Hawaii’s Dr. John Cho.

The large glossy green leaves are adorned with a wide band of creamy white down the center of each leaf, later radiating out into the side veins. Each amazing leaf is further highlighted by a large purple spot where the leaf attaches to the stalk. ‘White Lava’ is a medium grower reaching 48 x 36” at maturity. It makes an ideal 6” pot, 16” x12”. Perfect for large containers, garden borders, or mass landscape planting.
